This was great with Mahi Mahi on the Foreman grill. I threw it on top of a salad with a balsamic glaze. Next time I'll make some dressing with the sauce. Read More

Great flavor! Didn't have cumin but really flavorful without. Added some black pepper and voila! My husband asked for seconds before he finished his "firsts". Read More

Found this recipe by using the "search by ingredients" feature (love love love this feature!!!). In the freezer I had a package of Trader Joe's Chana Masala (Indian chick pea dish) and garlic naan (Indian flatbread). Searched for (fresh caught sockeye) salmon and cumin and voila this recipe! Even when marinated in juice for only 20 minutes and grilled indoors in a George Foreman it had great nuanced flavors and made a perfect entrée to go with my sides. Read More

Seasoning is way too sweet and overpowering. Would've been better with half of the amount. Read More
